Crispy Tofu & Potato Roast

Apr 1, 2020 | Main Meals

Tofu is a great staple to have on hand, it keeps in the fridge for quite some time and is an excellent source of satisfying plant-based protein. You’ll love it paired with these tender potatoes for a cozy and filing meal! 

Potatoes are a must in the pantry, they are so versatile and nutritious! Don’t forget to pick them up on your next grocery run! 

Here are a few tips from PotatoGoodness.com on How to Store Potatoes

  • Do not refrigerate or freeze fresh potatoes before cooking.

  • Store potatoes in a cool, dark, well ventilated place, avoiding high temperatures such as below sinks or next to appliances.

  • Be sure air can reach your potatoes. Either store loose or in plastic or paper bags with holes.

  • Don’t wash potatoes before storing as dampness will lead to early spoilage.

  • Check potatoes regularly and remove any that show signs of spoilage as this will spread to the others.
